The code of conduct applies to teammate interactions in various areas of our shared professional lives, including all shared physical and online spaces, social media and events where we represent Turbine Kreuzberg.
Turbine Kreuzberg is committed to providing a welcoming and safe environment for all. Discrimination and harassment are expressly prohibited. Furthermore, we want to appeal to you to refrain from any behavior or language that is unwelcoming.
We want to address these patterns explicitly as unwelcoming:
- No looking down on a teammate if they’re not familiar with something: It’s always acceptable to say “I don’t know” or “I don’t understand.” The only mistake is not to ask. So please don’t look down when someone isn’t familiar with a tool, person, place or
process. This applies to both technical and non- technical things.
No exclusionary language: Be careful in the words that you choose, even if it’s a small thing. Sexist, racist and other exclusionary jokes are not appropriate and will not be tolerated under any circumstance.
No -isms: Much exclusionary behavior takes the form of subtle -isms, or microaggressions — small things that make others feel unwelcome. Regardless of intent, these comments can have a significant demeaning impact on teammates. If something like this happens: please don’t say, “Comment X wasn’t sexist.” or “You’re being too sensitive.” Similarly, please don’t pile on someone who made a mistake. It’s not a big deal to mess up — just learn from it and move on.
